Nature of problem:
Residual stresses in a polycrystalline sample cause changes in lattice plane distances which result in a shift of the X-ray reflections. The reflection shift depends on the measurement direction within the sample and therefore we can utilize the shift to evaluate the residual stress, i.e. the stress tensor.
From the reflection shift we obtain the lattice strain along the measurement direction. From the set of strain values along different measurement directions (i.e. from strain values given in L), we calculate the strain/stress tensor (expressed in S) by the general transformation equation. To convert strains to stresses we use poly- crystal elastic compliances, which we calculate from the orientation distribution function (ODF) of the polycrystalline sample.
